When you stay here, you become a welcome part of our community.

EXPLORE THE AREA

Palacios has plenty to offer! Enjoy some great food at The Point (featured on Anthony Boudrain’s “Parts Unknown” and the PBS guy), take a stroll down Main St. to grab a cup coffee and an ice cream cone, grab a pole and try your hand at fishing on one of the many public piers, have a great time listening to live music, or enjoy some historic site-seeing around the area.

OUR STORY

The Peaceful Pelican has over 100 years of rich history. From being the site of the first private school in Matagorda County to being converted into apartments during World War II, it’s seen its fair share of action. And its host, Paula Whitney, is full of hospitality, scrumptious cooking, and cheerful spirits.

Peaceful times at the Peaceful Pelican ! Best views the bay and beautiful gulf breezes made our stay absolutely delightful!

Refreshing. Beautiful. Historic. Energizing. What a wonderful bed and breakfast! Steeped in history, wonderfully appointed, and located right on the water, this place offers you quiet of mind, rest and relaxation. The breakfasts were fantastic (tasty waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, cereal, bread, bowls of fruit and more), Paula was an amazing friendly host, and my family absolutely loved every minute here. Wifi was fast.
